On this episode of the Mindset By Dave Podcast I am talking about Understanding PARASOCIAL Relationships with Emory S Daniel Jr PhD
Parasocial relationships are one sided relationships where a viewer/fan/follower of a person forms a bond through the other person's public actions. Think a person who feels closer to a celebrity than they are for example and you're along the right lines.
However given the fact that it isn't just celebrities that live their lives in the public eye nowadays, parasocial relationships are on the rise, with people forming these kind of attachments with streamers, influencers, bloggers and more.
As such we thought it would be a great idea to talk about parasocial relationships, to help define them and the discuss how to navigate them from either side of the aisle!
